Hello uncivilised friends!
What an overwhelming response to the start of our crowdfund campaign – £3840 in 18 days – we’re over well over halfway to our goal already! This will help us finish the final edit and our pop-up cinema structure so we can take the film on the road this summer…
If you haven’t seen the trailer for our film project, wetheuncivilised, A Life Story, see it here now. (The trailer comes in at 3:54, after me and Pete talking about the vision). If you would like to stay updated on the film and the tour this summer SUBSCRIBE HERE.
We’re so deeply grateful for all the support so far… And we’re really excited at the buzz that seems to be growing about the film in the wider community.
Polly Higgins, ecocide lawyer, says in the film:
‘It’s about singing a new song, it’s about creating a new song for humanity and singing such a beautiful song that others want to join… that soon we have a choir, that’s singing so loud for the earth, that everyone else wants to come on board.’
Last week, we spent an incredible and beautiful evening with Hackney Harmony community choir creating an hour of sonic symphony. Thanks to alchemists Sophia Efthimiou and Cosmo Sheldrake for this an emergent piece of improvised music that will weave through our film.
